A Brave New World: Biden Reappoints Powell Amid a Coordinated Strategic Oil Reserves Release

DB-Nov 22,2021:President Biden nominates Fed Chairman Jerome Powell for a second term. The question on everyone’s mind is, what does it mean for the economy? Could Biden’s pick signal that the administration is opting for policy continuity? Powell faces a completely different economy from when he was sworn in, and he will have to pivot from previous policies as inflation is at 6.2%, its highest in 31 years. The U.S is also hurting from supply and labor imbalances. In the economy, oil prices rose on news that OPEC+ could raise oil production if large consuming countries release crude from their reserves. President Biden is expected to release oil from the nation’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Gary Brode, founder of Deep Knowledge Investing, sits down with Maggie Lake to discuss how the economy will fare once more under Powell, and what higher oil prices mean for investors and consumers.
